Kaduna State High Court has adjourned the trial of the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, and his wife, Zeenat to 25 and 26 January 2021.



The new date was fixed by the presiding judge, Justice Gideon Kurada, during Thursday’s sitting following the admission of six witnesses tendered by the prosecution counsel led by Dari Bayero.

The State presented two army officers who testified in secret before Justice Gideon Kurada of the Kaduna High Court on Wednesday.


A director from State Security Services, DSS, was among four witnesses admitted on Wednesday.

The others are residents of Gyallesu where the Sheikh lived before the army’s attack in December 2015.

Bayero informed Justice Kurada that he would present the remaining witnesses, including a General Officer Commanding (GOC) of the Nigerian Army, at the resumed hearing next year.
